UWT as exhibitor at first China International Import Expo in Shanghai
The China International Import Expo CIIE is one of the most comprehensive international trade events in different industry fields and technologies. Organized by Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China, CIIE 2018 took place at National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) (NECC) from 5-10 November 2018. The first expo of its kind was supported by international organizations such as WTO, UNCTAD and UNIDO and was hosted by the China International Import Expo Bureau and National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. Joint sponsors include the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China and the Municipal People's Government of Shanghai.
The Chinese government welcomed business communities, government officials, exhibitors and professional buyers across the world to participate in CIIE 2018 and to explore the Chinese market. The list of more than 2,800 exhibitors were like a Who's Who of well-known companies from a mix of diverse sectors such as Tesla, Facebook, SAP, Microsoft, Louis Vuitton, Adidas, KUKA or Siemens. Thus, it was very exciting for the UWT GmbH, as a German family-owned business, to be part of this important international event in the field of innovations from different industries and technologies. Together with the team of UWT International Trading (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. reliable technologies of measurement solutions for content and level limit detection as well as new sensor solutions for liquids applications were presented at the booth 3B3-002 in hall 3H. Special solutions from UWT, such as the interface measurement solution, particularly attracted the visitors’ attention. Some mentioned enthusiastically that they have been looking for a suitable way to reliably detect solids in liquids for years and now they are happy to have found a good solution with UWT.
As the sensors of UWT are at home in almost every industry, there was a great exchange of experience with users from different sectors as well as interesting discussions about new technologies. The platform was also perfect for discussing the generation of reliable measurement results under extreme operating conditions as well as customer-specific solutions. Well-known companies in Germany and abroad have been relying on UWT products and services for many years. Thus the CIIE offered a good opportunity to further establish the company in the global markets.
In 8 halls with 270,000 m2 / 2,906,256 square feet there were shown products and services of the categories consumer electronics and appliances, apparel, accessories and consumer goods, automobiles, high-end intelligent equipment, food and agricultural products, medical equipment and health care products as well as trade in services. Further there was a country pavilion for trade and investment. Focus of the 6-day event was to support trade liberalisation and economic globalization, to provide new channels for countries and regions to do business, strengthen cooperation and promote world economy and trade. The plan is to invest $10 trillion in technology imports over the next five years.
The visitors very much liked the Bavarian motto at the UWT booth and a relaxed atmosphere for networking was provided.
A big thank you goes to all of our visitors for the interesting discussions and the positive vibes that you have brought to our booth!
We are happy about the great interest in our devices and the constructive discussions about applications and special solutions of UWT that will be installed into the visitors’ plant systems.
